Eating Healthy - With No Time to Eat

This has been a long week - I have been covering as case manager at one hospital and coordinating the build for the implementation of a new electronic health record at the other hospital.  I also started my clinical rotation this week for the pediatric part of the family nurse practitioner program - oh and did I say I run a free health clinic, am training for a half-marathon, and I am teaching an online course for nursing (health assessment)...

I am not sure some days if I am coming or going.  There are mornings I have to ask the Big Man what day it is - but, all of this is good, I am blessed.

Eating healthy has been an issue with no time to prep or cook food.  I am tired of eating out.  Fast food has become a main stay in our diet. It is not healthy for the Big Man or for me.  I spent 30 minutes online looking for healthy recipes. It is amazing what is on the web. I found 5 I think we will eat that take no time to prep and a couple can be cooked in the crockpot.

This week I made an awesome Spinach, mushroom, feta crustless quiche.  We have been eating on it for a couple of days. Several Facebook Friends asked for the recipe, click  here Spinach, mushroom, feta crustless quiche for the recipe.
I used the crockpot today to make Chicken with beans and potatoes. This recipe made enough to freeze some for next week.  This recipe is healthy (I limited the salt and the potatoes). The Big Man Loved it.  I found it on the Taste of Home site.
Tonight I plan to make  pumpkin cupcakes (no icing). 
I found an asesome webiste  The recipes are  low fat, family-friendly, and  healthy.  I made these Pumpkin Cupcakes a few weeks ago and the Big Man loved them..

I hope you enjoy the recipes - let me know what you think
